HURRY UP!!


Seriously, Ellie, you need to BRING IT! We are all becoming very tired of waiting on you to make your grand entrance. But of course, none more tired than your mom...I really don't think that it is possible for her feet to swell anymore without shooting off of her legs like a potato out of a potato gun! Needless to say we are all VERY excited to meet you....So, that being said, if you don't hurry up and get here, I may have to make a trip to Seaside to visit your GG. You may be thinking to yourself, as you float around in the uterus you call home, "what in the world does that have to do with the price of corn in China?" Well, let me explain it to you dear little unborn child...
Let us rewind a few years back to July 24 2004~
I (your Auntie Em) had just completed my internship and was all geared up for a 2 week vacation before I plunged into the real world of working and responsibility. So, off I went to Seaside for some relaxing fun in the sun. However, before I left, I made sure to tell Aunt Kim to keep those babies inside there for just a few more days until I return! HA!!! Yeah Right! I had been there for less than 24 hours when I received a phone call.....it went a little something like this:
Me: Hello?
Her: Emma? Kim's water just broke...she's at the hospital!
Me: WHAT??!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! (immediately bursting into tears)
Her: Yeah, they're checking her right now, but it'll probably be a while before anything happens.
Me: Okay, I'm coming home. (determination written all over my face)

After hanging up the phone, I turn to GG and your mom and say "Kim's going into labor....I'm going home." Upon hearing my declaration, your mommy, being the caring and overprotective person that she is, began yelling at me "NO YOU'RE NOT!!! Emma, it is 9:00 at night! You are NOT driving home in the middle of the night all by yourself!!!"
EXCUSE ME???!! Ha!! I'll show YOU! YES I AM!!!!!!!!!!!!! (some people may call me stubborn, i just call it strong will and loyalty to friends and family....)
So, off I went. Determined to make it there in time....I would NOT miss this! I COULDN'T miss this! And thankfully I did not. I made it there just in the nick of time! Yay!! *sigh of relief*


Now, you still may be thinking "so what? just because that happened once doesn't mean that I'm gonna come just because you leave town..."
But Au Contraire my sweet little fetus!
Let's fast forward from July 24 2004 to November 24 2008~
Micah: You DO realize that if I go into labor while you're out of town for Thanksgiving, you HAVE to come home immediately?! Right?
Me: Of course!!! But I really don't think that will happen....i mean, you still have 2 weeks to go, and you're scheduled to be induced in one week...so that TOTALLY won't happen...
Micah: Well, I'm just saying, you and him better take separate cars just in case....
Me: Okey Dokey! (confident that I wouldn't be needing that extra vehicle...)
HA!!! Yeah right! I had been there for less than 12 hours when GG came into the bedroom at 7 am to wake me up...."Emma, Micah has been trying to call you...she's in labor!"
WHAT????!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! Not again! This CANNOT be happening AGAIN! Oh, but it was. And what had I done? Ignored the advice of my dear, sweet Micah and had NOT driven that extra vehicle. DAMN. ooops!! I mean DARN. Where was he, you might say...well, HE was an hour away working with the only vehicle we had. CRAP. It would be hours before he was able to get back. And it would be even more hours before I made it home. There was nothing. I . could do. I did, however, make it back that day and was able to meet baby C on his birthday. whew! thank goodness :)


So you see Ellie, this is what I'm saying....The only sure fire way for me to ensure that you arrive by your due date, February 24 (do we see a pattern here?) is to go to the beach on February 23....But, please...don't make me relive these traumatic experiences yet again....please??

Also, in the picture....it says a full tank of gas, but I'm not so sure of that. You might run out of gas. Ryan, come get me, I did it again.
